Just 21 years ago, Bill Clinton was president. Back then it was the Chinese blamed for trying to influence American politics. Bill Clinton introduced welfare reform and was not cited for trying to starve children or kill old people. The NBA's longstanding rule for team conduct states that players, coaches, and trainers are to stand and line up in a dignified posture along the sidelines or on the foul line during the playing of the national anthem. Citing its rule, former NBA commissioner David Stern suspended former LSU and star Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf (Chris Jackson) in 1996 for sitting down during the national anthem when he played for the Denver Nuggets. Abdul-Rauf suspension was lifted after one day when he agreed to stand during the anthem but pray silently in his hands. Different circumstances, different sport, but same controversy. But the progressive left hadn't gotten around to influencing public thought on things like marriage, sexual identity or patriotism. The masses are a bunch of puppets.
